Before this list begins to grow exponentially, perhaps we should first begin with a clear definition of a Troll. Is a troll merely a casual reader who chooses only to chime in rarely? Or is a troll an evil bottom feeder with no social life and whose favorite movie quote is "It rubs the lotion on the skin or it gets the hose again"?

That's a pretty damn good definition, basically a more consice version of wikipedia's definition:

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional responseor of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

If trolls were called bullies then Cliff Hucker and his buddies here are the real trolls !

Yep. Although I still think that the Cards have more promise given what they did to the Vikings the previous week. The local team here is very good at putting up stink bombs from time to time, but I feel they will still do well in the end (please leave the nasty remarks out). The Pats, on the other hand, I have absolutely no faith in at this point. Perhaps they may yet prove me wrong, but I'm not holding my breath. Especially if Moss is back to his "sorry, I just don't give a damn" mentality.

Pats will be lucky to get past the Wild Card game. Hope I am wrong, but it sure is looking bleak.

Hopefully Fitzgerald is ok (seems like he is) - Cards are going nowhere without him.

This is totally random, but that is one of my very favorite South Parks, the one where Cartman is playing Silence of the Lambs with his dolls. Something about his voice reading that line just kills me.

Video of the video, but I don't want to make you slog through the whole video at the southpark website.

A troll can be a muse, apparently.

NC deserves credit for this LMA/GD forum inspired ditty.

"Is a troll merely a casual reader who chooses only to chime in rarely?" No, I think this is the Lurker category.

From wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll

A troll is a member of a race of fearsome creatures from Norse mythology.

Originally more or less the Nordic equivalents of giants, although often smaller in size, the different depictions have come to range from the fiendish giants – similar to the ogres of England (also called Trolls at times, see Troller's Gill) – to a devious, more human-like folk of the wilderness, living underground in hills, caves or mounds. In the Faroe islands, Orkney and Shetland tales, trolls are called trows, adopted from the Norse language when these islands were settled by Vikings.

Nordic literature, art and music from the romantic era and onwards has adapted trolls in various manners – often in the form of an aboriginal race, endowed with oversized ears and noses. From here, as well as from Scandinavian fairy tales such as Three Billy Goats Gruff, trolls have achieved international recognition, and in modern fantasy literature and role-playing games, trolls are featured to the extent of being stock characters.
